I have been asked, so I did. There's a small range in my neighborhood, and when I rented this place it had a ten yard range with three stations parallel to the laundry room.
But I like to shoot things further away. So I've been competing at a local club, and I've often stopped in to help with range setup and teardown, putting up barricades for matches, that sort of thing.
Last month they asked me to join. THis is a private club which holds invitational matches, and it's a nice club not far from here. I will be the first non-military member. I feel as if I have been handed a great honor, to hang with servicemen and women who walked the walk. I will do my best to deserve it.
